Influentally, it remains to be seen, but GKMC isn't exactly revitalizing the west coast the way Illmatic did for the east.
This is a completely different era though.. There's no East/West beef now, there's no reason for there to be a revitalization of the West.. Imo, this album was more of a revitalization of the art of Hip Hop...

I think it's fair to consider GKMC the Illmatic of this generation rather than the West Coast's Illmatic.
